Funny, I was about to post almost that same list, except I would've added 5/7/77 (which might be a notch above 5/9). Great MNS's were quite common in that year.

Perhaps that merely illustrates my greater familiarity with the Keith years than the Brent years...

Nice! Me I think it could just be that great minds think alike ;) I am curious about you choice of 5/7 over 5/9 though...I haven't heard that version quite some time so it's hard to judge off hand, but I remember liking 5/9 better b/c Jerry's solo just sounded a lot hotter to me than 5/7.

Well, those are mostly pretty famous versions, so I wasn't too surprised that someone else picked the same ones.
10/1/77 is probably the most undersung of the bunch, and it's surprisingly hot.

4/21/78 is pretty close to 4/24/78, though the band sounds a bit more excited on 4/24.

I don't think there's much to choose in hotness between the 5/7 & 5/9/77 versions...they seem pretty similar to me. I may prefer 5/7 because of that distracting SBD cut in 5/9, and also because in the 5/7 jam they sound like they're increasingly going off the rails...

Good points for sure...I don't hear the 10/1 version discussed often in the best ever lists either. It should be more widely known, the jam hits some great peaks and melodies that are pretty unique. I'm unfamiliar with 4/21/78, I'll have to check that out...
